Welcome to my blog!

I am a lefty. I write vertically, cannot use can-openers and was recently foiled by a right handed ladle (I will have my vengeance...) but more than this, I generally seem to approach life from a different angle. I appreciate that this may have nothing to do with being a lefty and may just be my own dysfunctionallity, but after earning the nickname 'Lefty-Flip' after a frustrating game of Guitar Hero, it seemed an appropriate title for this blog.

The shake-up continues!

Well doesn't time fly by when you're having fun! I can't remember a January I've not spent hiding under the duvet (or at least wishing I was).
House update - well the first house I went to see was a complete let down. It was tiny! Literally no room to swing a cat. Well, maybe Brian but certainly not Fatty Frances. Seriously, I could have opened the front door without leaving the sofa.
I have since found somewhere far more suitable and in a fit of frivolity decided to take it! I move in less than two weeks!!!
So I am now frantically packing up my belongings (including over 100 Harry Potter books - yeah yeah, I know I'm crazy...) and attempting to shop for furniture, because I don't actually own any!

In between boxes I have managed to squeeze in some writing... not sure this is the right time for a major rewrite of an entire section but that's what's happening! Ah well, I'm having a clear out of old junk, that might as well include crappy writing!

All in all, still got that lovely New-year-anything-is-possible vibe going.

Good times.


PS In more cryptic news, I have updated my twitter bio in an attempt to flush out any VFD'ers out there. If you know what I mean, then I don't need to explain - if not, keep on walking, nothing to see here...


  1. Don't think I've ever heard someone use the "swing a cat" expression "literally". In fact, the incorrect use of literally is one of my big things at the moment as in "I was literally over the moon" and what I "literally" did when I was scared (messy). So nice to see here that we could say, quite correctly, you literally couldn't swing a cat.

    Glad to hear the New Year vibe continues. I have the vibe but haven't managed any action so well done you. As for 100 Harry Potter books......

  2. Have you seen my Potter addict page on here? Sad thing is I have aquired more since then!

    1. I hadn't but I have now! I thought only blokes on the autistec spectrum collected things to this extent...

      No wonder you need a place of your own. Come to think of it, the books could do with a place of their own!

      Hope the move went well.

  3. Good luck with the packing and the moving. I'm impressed you're managing to get any writing done.
